Trivia

Considering the time period and budget of the TV series, one of the most impressive realistic visual effects were the phaser beams. As well as having a consistent sound effect, they were colored just enough so that the viewer could actually see through them. This made them a lot more believable as opposed to other Sci-Fi TV and films at the time where they were obvious animations.


Quotes

Capt. Kirk: There's no such thing as the unknown- only things temporarily hidden, temporarily not understood.


Goofs

In several episodes, the positions of people being beamed up/down change. For example, in Star Trek: Mirror, Mirror (1967) when the landing party is being beamed up, Kirk's arm is positioned down, then up as he starts to materialize the first time, then down again as he finally materializes.


Crazy Credits

Robert Lansing is the only guest star on this series to be billed at the top of the program - just after the episode's title - rather than in the end credits. After the words, "Assignment: Earth", came, "Guest Star Robert Lansing as Mister Seven."


Alternate Versions

Footage from the episodes "The Trouble with Tribbles" and "Mirror, Mirror" was used in a special episode of "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993) in the late 1990s entitled "Trials and Tribble-ations," which featured the stars of DS9 digitally inserted into the original footage.
